Eric Ebron(Ben L.Smith High School/Greensboro) on the field playing tight end for the North Carolina Tar Heels versus James Madison University today in Chapel Hill…..Approaching halftime the score was UNC 28-7, over JMU……Smith Golden Eagle in the house on the Hill…..

*****Maybe Appalachian should go ahead and put all of those moving up talks on the back burner and focus on where they are for now and just stay there…..They don’t need to move up, it will be repeat of what saw and heard today, all over again and again…..A special kid like Armanti Edwards only comes around every 15-20 years and he was nowhere to be seen today for the Mountaineers, in Blacksburg……*****


BLACKSBURG, Va. — David Wilson, Logan Thomas and No. 13 Virginia Tech made sure Frank Beamer’s 25th season as the head coach at his alma mater started off better than the last three — with a victory.

Wilson ran for 162 yards and three touchdowns, Thomas threw the first two TD passes of his career and the defense was solid as the Hokies routed Appalachian State 66-13 on Saturday.

After opening at FedEx Field against Boise State last year, Virginia Tech lost its home opener to FCS opponent James Madison. This year was a different story in their home opener against an FCS foe.

Wilson scored on runs of 20, 19 and 3 yards — the first just 47 seconds into the game after Antone Exom recovered a fumble by Mountaineers quarterback DeAndre Presley at the 20. Wilson also broke off runs of 48 and 33 yards before yielding to reserves in the third quarter.

Thomas was pulled early after completing nine of 19 passes for 149 yards, with scoring throws of 7 yards to Randall Dunn and 4 yards to Jarrett Boykin. Thomas was not intercepted.
